Welcome to LLoyd C. Bird High School! Our Skyhawks work hard, play hard and take care of each other everyday! Our vision is to ignite our student’s passion for learning through authentic and captivating experiences. The 2020-2021 school year will be unique in many ways. Our teachers and staff are committed to helping students navigate this unchartered territory. We are preparing engaging instruction to ensure every student experiences learning and success in their coursework this school year- beyond the four walls of a typical classroom. Our faculty also remains committed to fostering a culturally responsive environment where our students are not only safe, but also cared for and loved by trusted adults.
As your Principal, it is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors – teachers, students, parents and community members – feel welcomed and are excited to be here! I am so proud of the school culture and climate at Bird High School. We are a family that cares about each other. Our core values are Bravery, Integrity, Respect and Determination. Staying true to our core values allows us to fulfill our goal of developing our students into lifelong independent learners.
I am committed to consistent and clear communication with Bird families. Every Sunday, I send home a Skyhawk Sunday Spotlight which highlights the events and activities at Bird in great detail. Please feel free to call or email me to discuss any concerns you might have throughout the school year. I look forward to working as a team to help each student at L.C. Bird Imagine and Create a Better Tomorrow! Go Skyhawks!!!
